Wanderlust Hoop

  1. Wet the bottom half of fabric with water using a large watercolor brush.

  4. Begin at the bottom using a watercolor brush and Pink Dahlia, brush horizontally. Add more water and less paint moving towards the top of the fabric creating a soft Ombre effect.
  5. Repeat this process at the top of the fabric using the same watercolor brush with Wild Salmon. Blend colors where they meet in the middle. Let dry completely.
  6. Stencil a Wedding Cake elephant using a stencil brush. Let dry.
  7. Stretch fabric into hoop, tighten the screw to secure fabric in place. Trim excess fabric.

Camel Hoop
